Newark residents collaborate to create healthy, sustainable communities
It would be great if you could break bread with us on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. as we, the Newark Community Food System collective (NCFS), take on grassroots initiatives around sustainable living practices and the positive impact of urban agriculture on community health. The collective will also encourage collaboration and social entrepreneurship as a means to create tangible and sustainable solutions for environmental and social issues. Beyond the food system, we also aim to influence renewable energy, the visual arts, ecological building, and health care. Click here to learn more.
